An elected official is set to be removed from office after being caught selling drugs to an undercover agent, police in Pennsylvania said.

The Wyoming County District Attorney said that he has asked a judge to remove 31-year-old Shane Fryer of Laceyville, after being accused of selling meth to an undercover informant.

Fryer was elected as a constable two years ago, and his term was set to expire in 2020.

The district attorney told the court that the constable should be removed because the job required ethical conduct and the trust of the public.

According to the criminal complaint, Fryer sold meth to an undercover agent at least twice. When police searched his home, Fryer was near meth, his badge and gun.

He was charged with drug possession with intent to deliver, criminal use of a communication facility and conspiracy to possess drugs with intent to deliver.

He was booked into jail, and his bail has been set at $15,000.
